Are you sure it's coming from the WP?  I've had a similar sounding noise 
before on my '85 4KQ, and it ended up being bad bearing/s in the alternator.  
Use the real or fake (long screwdriver) stethoscope test to narrow down the 
problem.  The only other thing I can think of (but usually quite quiet) would 
be the oil pump.
